. this was nothing compared to what happened yesterday in libya at the consulate in the city of benghazi. we are now learning that there was a five-hour gun battle as the consulate there was under attack by a militant group that used military-style tactics, used mortars and used rpgs and ultimately killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador. richard engel, nbc news, cairo. >> many thanks to nbc's richard engel reporting in cairo. >>> let's get right to our distinguished panel, indiana republican senator dan coates and peter brooks who worked in the bush administration and larry core who worked in the reagan administration. you know, senator coates, the president of egypt has still not apologized, best i understand, president obama who was trying to always carry favor with the middle east and wants to forgive $1 billion of debt to egypt, a country that hasn't even apologized for what's gone on, and i will tell you, sir, i'd like to hear what you have to say, watching president obama twice bungle this from the state department. if it weren't for hillary and if it weren't for -- if it weren't
in the consulate in benghazi in eastern libya, there is a cross border aspect to this story that is making right now in tunis. and another aspect of the story tunisia, like other countries are being hard-hit by the united states to stop the radicalism we see here in wake of the arab spring. they told me they did not see the tunisia step between the protests of the islamist and protestors the other friday that did knowledge damage to the u.s. embassy, and its compound and a school nearby where about a hundred american kids were staying until about two hours before the protest. there with us a demand coming from the americans that the tunisia act against these radicals. and there was a taunt in that too. tunisia looking to america to fork over half a billion dollars in needed money over the next year to payoff loans in this economy. there is a bit of a taunt there too by the united states that, hey you come through there and then maybe we can come through with this. back to the breaking news, we'll get a hard confirm when we get our crew on the ground seeing this. about a thousand security surroun
.s. consulate in benghazi in june. i want to bring in our cnn national security analyst, peter bergen, who has reported extensively on al qaeda as well as interviewing sbeosama bin la back in '97. i talked to peter earlier and he explained how the u.s. first learned about this al qaeda group in libya. >> reporter: in 2007, the u.s. military recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. and when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was kind of an unexpected thing to find. and so historically, libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them? do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there is sort of umbrella group, according to the former libyan jihadist called ansar al sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this i
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c

.s. ambassador was killed in benghazi. mike baker joins us, former covert operations officer with the cia, head of diligence to moguls to carry from. let me start with a question, if i can, about security. some people have brought up the fact, was there as much security as they needed to be at some of these indices from what you've seen of the last couple of days to make >> again, hindsight, it's terrific. it would have been wise to have beefed up security. in all honesty in libya where we know associates are operating, where there are tremendous amounts of hardware, weaponry on the streets so from the revolution when they are resort opened up and pilfered. just a general operating in firming, still trying to form a government. they should have been significantly more security on the ground. at this point after such a sad event, you know, you have to review, look. we have to prevent this in the future. charles: the sow will be talking about. after we talk about the response to want to get to as low. your other area of expertise to my intelligence and what we should have known about this, of tal
city of benghazi. the u.s. ambassador was killed in the consulate attack. hundreds of egyptian riot police are guarding the embassy in cairo after last night's protest outside that compound. the protesters who are angry over a youtube film mocking islam actually swarmed the u.s. embassy in cairo overnight. at one point, dozens of demonstrators managed to climb the compound's perimeter wall. the protesters also tore down the embassy's american flag and burned it to denounce the internet movie. no u.s. embassy staff were injured in that attack. >>> now to the markets. we have a visitor from the cnbc trading pits with us onset this morning. michael girka is with us. what, are you on strike and had some time off, so you came back here to -- you're not a teacher, are you? >> i am not. never striking. >> what about that, first of all? when did you come into town? >> monday. >> so it hadn't really started yet. >> no. >> what do you do with 400,000 kids that have no place to go? >> there's going to be a lot of overtime police officers, i know that, working. >> so this is going to be expensi
to the consulate in libya killing four people including the u.s. ambassador to libya. the violence in benghazi erupting after a film produced by a developer. it is a movie not flattering to the religion. all of this horror and ugliness over a movie that without these horrible scenes most of us would never have heard of let alone watched. i return to a discussion we had earlier. why do we remain so dependent on middle eastern oil. a perceived insult in a small film spurs all of this and we depend on them for energy in this country. if this is not a wakeup call i don't know what is. why not allow the keystone pipeline with canada which is our friend and would create more domestic oil or how about an energy policy which requires natural gas. all of this doesn't mean we can't still pursue clean energy ideas? isn't that better than depending on a region that does this because of a movie? it seems to me this is where policy and businesses can work together. it is not happening and the situation has become deadly. it may not be the last time. before we take a look at the day on wall street today wher

of state clinton paid tribute to the four americans slain in benghazi earlier this week, the administration is at least trying to slow down the spread of these anti-american protests across the world. they disclosed today in that effort that they had asked google and youtube to review their terms of use to see if this anti-muslim film violated those terms of use. the request was made on tuesday night as that violence was taking place. it was only disclosed today. it appears so far that youtube is not taking the video down, although they have said they are restricting access in some countries. this is a situation where the administration is not in control of events. they're trying to do whatever they can to slow down the violence. >> it seems to me to just blame the video is really misguided. it was september 11th. there's clearly a coordination to get us on september 11th. >> well, you may think it's misguided, maria, but i think the administration believes, and there are a lot of other people who believe this video was, in fact, the cause of these protests. >> julia, you're following the s

, militant terrorists and they are the ones who attacked the cult in benghazi and they have been doing their deed for the last 10, 15 years since afghanistan, iraq and now around the world. so you got that movement going. you got mainstream islamic groups like muslim brotherhood groups in egypt and other places who are competing for a new place in the political arena that's evolving in these countries that's democraticizing and old pent up grievances against the united states and other western countries. you have three or four things coming together where they are evolving political conditions and people are competing to get public opinions, so these things come together and that's how we should best understand this. >> is this a subset of the arab world or a broad base thing? >> what's interesting you have these demonstrations all over the islamic world, indonesia, nigeria, bangladesh. the movie triggers anger and rage for muslims across the islamic world. in the arab world you have a set of political grievances against the u.s. and europe and other places and these are coming into pl
in the attack on consulate in benghazi last night. rich edson following the developing story from the white house. rich? >> ashley, fox news's ed henry reports that senior administration official telling him and although it is early and they haven't made determinations yet there are early signs this was a planned attack, they urge we're still in the early stages figuring out exactly what has gone on. this after the president spent the morning at white house and state department meeting with folks and making promises that the u.s. will seek justice for the four murders in libya of folks in the u.s. state department. meanwhile positive romney saying much is a result of the u.s., the white house, excuse me is sending mixed signals on foreign policy. >> we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. make no mistake, justice will be done. >> as i have watched over the past 3 1/2 years the president has had some successes. he has had some failures. it is a hit or miss approach but it has not been based upon sound foreign policy. >> there was some discussion
film. the president of libya now says the attack a week ago on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was a planned assault possibly organized by a group with -- with ties to al qaeda as an act of revenge. >> the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a pre-planned pre-meditated attack. that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction -- peter: as you mentioned, oil and gasoline prices remain elevated this part over middle east tensions including new disagreements between the u.s. and israel over responding to iran's new clear program. -- nuclear program. that's fuelled new speculation that the president may tap the strategic petroleum reserve 7 weeks before election day, but one energy executive says oil supplies are adequate. >> there are many political reasons to draw down the strategic petroleum reserve. but there are really no strategic reasons to draw down the spr based on fundamentals. keep in mind, it is the strategic petroleum reserve, not the political expediency petroleum reserve. peter: the white house continues to
that the u.s. consulate in benghazi may not have had heightened security. do you think this could have been handled better either before or after the attack could >> i do not know the details, but i am sure the answer to that question is yes. when something goes wrong, there is always something you could have done better. april 2007, there was a shooting at virginia tech, the most significant crime in the history of the state, and i had just landed in japan on a trade mission, and i got on a plane and flew back, and i spent time dealing with the breeding members of that community, and i said we would put in place a panel of people that have no connection to virginia tech, and we will have them turn it upside down so we can minimize the chance of anything like that happening again. we can minimize that chance. we found a lot of things that could have been done better. it required us to make significant changes to the mental health laws and to people who were adjudicated for being mentally ill and getting firearms. there were things that have gone wrong, and we fixed them. i am sure there wer
concerning the death of ambassador stevens and the american in an gauzy. -- in benghazi. i want to apologize for what happened here a good it happened in the city i live in. it is a shame, and what makes it very difficult for me, i knew chris personally for a number of years. we played tennis together, and i remember when he came back from libya, we were going to play a game of tennis together, and he was going to be the next ambassador of libya. i said, you are the right man in the right place in the right time. he loved libya. he rarely leaves the revolution day and night, and he is a libyan champion. how this incident happened, why the libyans tried tune in to protect new foreign diplomats -- tried to help protect foreign diplomats, unfortunately, i believe there is one main reason behind it, that we have no organization. we have no decisionmaker to take care of security without police, without intelligence, we do not need to do anything, and this is the message i am very concerned about with the prime minister. if we had no way to protect our people, we would not be able to establish a d
